AGAINST ANY EMPLOYEE WHO MAY LAY OFF FROM 
WORK, ESPECIALLY ON HIS OWN TIME, IN ORDER TO 
GIVE A FORMER "BUDDY" A MILITARY BURIAL. 

Gentlemen — Referring to the resolution adopted 
by your Honorable Body on November 10, 1920, ap- 
pearing at pages 1019 and 1020 of the Proceedings 
of the City Council of that date, I desire to inform 
the Council that I have caused the proclamation to 
be drawn which was requested in the Council reso- 
lution. 

On reflection, however, I have decided to with- 
hold temporarily the publication of the proclama- 
tion, for the reason that the practices to which it 
refers, if such be general or common, would subject 
our city to deserved reproach. 

Under these circumstances, I deemed it advisable 
to ask for the facts on which the Council resolution 
was based, in order to determine whether the prac- 
tices complained of are of frequent or infrequent 
occurrence. If the latter, it might be a better public 
policy to deal with a few cases directly than to 'allow 
the world to believe that our citizens generally are 
guilty of such practices, which would be quickly as- 
sumed from the publication of a proclamation on 
the subject. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

and School Boys of New York City.

(copy) 
New York, December 1, 1920. 

Mayor Thompson, 

Chicago, III. 

Called Mayor Hylan's attention to your suggestion 
for match between sixty Chicago and sixty New 
York school boy skaters. He is heartily in accord. 
Evening World will present handsome trophy to 
winners. Plan is to interest all of our hundred and 
(Mghty schools, each to select its champion and these 
hundred eighty to compete later for sixty member- 
ships on team. Anticipate great interest. What do 
you think of middle January for contest? This 
date suggested because frequently little ice skating 
in New York parks before that time.

Chicago "Boostei"" Signs in Railroad Stations.

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The board of Directors of the Chi- 
cago Boosters' Club, of which I am President, passed 
a resolution at its last meeting asking the railroads 
entering Chicago to install permanent attractive 
signs, 3x5 feet, in the principal stations along their 
lines. These signs will carry the advertising busi- 
nesses in which Chicago leads the world, such as 
grain, moat products, lumber, clothing, etc., and art, 



literature, the animal zoo in Lincoln Park and many 
other features that are free to our visitors. 

I have sent a communication to Mr. Hale Holden, 
President of the C, B. & Q. R. R., a copy of w"hich 
communication is attached hereto, asking his co- 
operation in installing these signs along the right- 
of-way of the railroad company of which he is Presi- 
dent. 

I am also addressing communications to the 
Presidents of the various other railroads asking their 
assistance and co-operation. 

I respectfully request the co-operation of Your 
Honorable Body in endeavoring to secure the co-op- 
eration of the various railroad companies. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Chicago, November 18, 1920. 

Mr. Hale Holden, President, C. B. & Q. R. R., Chicago: 

Dear Mr. Holden — The directors of the Chicago 
Boosters' Publicity Club, of which I am president, 
passed a resolution at yesterday's meeting asking 
the railroads entering Chicago to install permanent, 
attractive signs, 3x5 feet, in the principal stations 
along their lines. These signs would briefly 
enumerate some of the advantages and attractions 
of our city. 

I am, therefore, writing to ask if the idea meets 
with your approval and in that case whether your 
railroad is in a position to place the signs in the 
stations along the lines; also how many you would 
require to cover the principal points. We, of course, 
would expect to furnish these signs to you free. 

Thanking you in advance for the consideration of 
this proposition, which we believe will bring many 
desirable visitors to our city, I am 

Yours very truly, 



(Signed) 



Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

wood Park avenue, shall be at the elevation of the 
top of the curbing hereinbefore described, except at 
the intersection of North Harlem avenue, where the 
surface of the finished pavement shall be at the 
elevation of center of roadway hereinbefore de- 
scribed; and the surface of the said finished road- 
ways at the summits in the gutters between catch- 
basins and adjoining the roadway face of the curb- 
ing shall be three (3) inches below the top of said 
curbing, and the surface of the said finished road- 
ways at the catchbasin inlets in the gutters adjoin- 
ing the roadway face of the curbing shall be ten (10) 
inches below the top of said curbing. 

The slope of the gutters adjoining the roadway 
face of said curbing shall be uniform from the sum- 
mits to the catchbasin inlets, and a transverse sec- 
tion of the finished surface of the pavement and 
gutters shall be an arc of a circle passing through

torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of limestone screen- 
ings, free from dirt, dust and other impurities, ex- 
posed to the air for one (1) day and immersed in 
water for (6) days, shall develop an ultimate ten- 
sile strength of two hundred (200) pounds per 
square inch. 

One (1) part cement which shall stand the above 
test and comply with the above requirements, and 
three (31 parts of torpedo sand, or three (3) parts 
of limestone screenings, free from dirt, dust and 
other impurities, shall be thoroughly mixed dry and 
then made into a mortar with the least possible 
amount of water. 

Seven (7) parts of the best quality of slag, lime- 
stone, or other stone which shall be equal in quality 
for concrete purposes, of a size that will pass through 
a ring of two (2) inches internal diameter and be 
held on a ring of one-half (1/2) inch internal di- 
ameter, all of which slag or stone shall be thoroughly 
cleaned, free from all foreign Substances and drench- 
ed with water, shall then be incorporated immediate- 
ly with the mortar. Each batch of concrete shall 
be thoroughly mixed and at once spread upon the 
surface of said roadbeds and thoroughly compacted 
by ramming until free mortar appears on the sur- 
face. The surface of said layer of concrete shall 
be parallel with and three and one-half (3%) inches 
below the top of the finished pavement. 

Upon the concrete foundation as above specified 
shall be laid a binder course, composed of asphal't 
cement, gravel or clean broken limestone of varying 
sizes which will pass through a ring of one (1) inch 
internal diameter and clean hard grained sand of a 
size that will pass a four (4) mesh sieve and be re- 
tained on a two hundred (200) mesh sieve. 

The gravel or stone and sand shall be heated and 
thoroughly mixed ^with asphalt cement in such pro- 
portion that the resulting mixture shall contain by 
weight five (5) per cent, of bitumen soluble in car- 
bon disulphide, twenty-five (25) per cent, of sand 
and seventy (70) per cent, of gravel or stone. This 
binder shall be spread on the base above described 
and while in a hot and plastic condition shall be 
rolled to an even surface, and after having received 
its ultimate compression, shall be of a thickness of 
one and one-half (1%) inches. The upper surface 
shall be parallel with and two (2) inches below the 
finished surface of the pave'ment. 

Upon this binder course shall be laid a wearing 
surface, which shall be composed of asphalt cement, 
clean graded sand and levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes. 
The sand and asphalt cement shall be heated separ- 
ately to a temperature of three hundred (300) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. The levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes 
shall be mixed with the sand, and these ingredients 
then mixed with the asphalt cement at the above 
temperature in an apparatus which shall effect a 
thorough mixture. This mixture shall be composed 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide — 11.5 per 
cent.; material passing a 200-mesh sieve — 12 per 
cent.; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and retain- 
ed on a 200-mesh sieve — 25 per cent.; material pass- 
ing- a 40-mesh sieve and retained on an 80-mesh 
sieve — 38 per cent.; material passing a 10-mesh 
sieve and retained on a 40-mesh sieve — 12 per cent.; 
and material passing a 4-mesh sieve and retained 
on a 10-mesh sieve — 1.5: per cent. 

The wearing surface when mixed as above shall 
be spread at a temperature of two hundred and 
eighty (280) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be care- 
fully spread to an even surface and to such depth 



that after having received its ultimate compression 
it will have a thickness of two (2) inches. 

The wearing surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition, shall receive ini- 
tial compression by rolling with a self-propelled rol- 
ler of five (5) tons weight after which natural hy- 
draulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1000) square yards of surface 
shall be swept over it, and the whole then thorough- 
ly compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller 
of ten (10) tons weight, the rolling being continued 
for five (5) hours for each thousand (1000) square 
yards of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the refined asphalt or asphalts and fiux, 
where flux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
the refined' asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts 
of each, and that the total proportion of refined as- 
phalt or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement 
shall not be less than fifty (50j per cent, by weight. 
When the weight of fiux in the asphalt cement pre- 
pared from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty- 
five (25) per cent, thereof, asphaltic or semi-as- 
phaltic fiux shall be used. The refined asphalt and 
flux used in preparing the cement shall be melted 
together in a kettle at temperatures ranging from 
two-hundred and fifty (250j degrees to not over 
three hundred and seventy-five (375) degrees Fah- 
renheit, and be thoroughly agitated when hot by air, 
steam or mechanical appliances, until the resulting 
cement, has become thoroughly mixed into a hom- 
ogeneous mass. The agitation must be continued 
during the entire period of preparing the mixtures. 
The cement shall always be of uniform consistency 
and if any portion should settle in the kettles be- 
tween intervals of using the same it must be tho- 
roughly agitated before being drawn for use. The 
asphalt cement shall have a penetration at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees- Fahrenheit, of from thirty (30) 
to one hundred (100) degree^, which shall be varied 
within these limits to adapt it to the particular as- 
phalt used in the paving mixture and to the traflic 
and other conditions of the street. When forty (40) 
grams of the asphalt cement of the consistency used 
in the paving mixture shall be heated for five (5) 
hours at a temperature of three hundred and twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fahrenheit, in a tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, there must 
not be volatilized more than five (5) per cent, of 
the bitumen nor shall the penetration at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit after such heating 
be less than one-half of the original penetration. A 
briquette of the asphalt cement of the consistency 
used in the paving mixture shall have a ductility 
of not less than ten (10) centimeters. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 
asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty (450) degrees Fahrenheit 
until all water and light oils have been driven off. 
At least ninety-eight and one-half (981/2) per cent, 
of the contained bitumen in the refined asphalt 
which is soluble in cold carbon disulphide shall be 
soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt may also be obtained by the 
careful distillation of California or Mexican petro- 
leum with steam agitation, at a temperature not 
exceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, 
until the resulting residue has a consistency not 
softer than seventy (70) degrees penetration and 
not harder than thirty (30) degrees penetration. The 
solid residue so obtained shall be soluble in carlDon 
tetra chloride to the extent of ninety-eight and one-

half (98%) per cent. If the solubility in carbon tetra 
chloride of the solid residue is less than ninety-nine 
(99) per cent., the bitumen shall yield upon ignition 
not more than fifteen (15) per cent, of fixed car- 
bon; if the solubility is ninety-nine (99) per cent, 
or more, the bitumen shall yield upon ignition not 
more than eighteen (18) per cent, of fixed carbon. 
When forty (40) grams of the material are heated 
for five (5) hours at a temperature of three hundred 
and twenty-five (325) degrees' P'ahrenheit in a tin 
box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, 
it shall lose not over five (5) per cent, by weight 
nor shall the penetration after such heating be less 
than one-half of the original penetration. The re- 
fined asphalt shall have a ductility at fifty (50) 
penetration, of thirty (30) centimeters. 

The flux may be a parafilne, a semi-asphaltic or 
an asphaltic residuum of petroleum vv-hich shall be 
tested with and found suitable to the asphalt to be 
used. All fluxes shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-nine (99) per cent. 
The paralfme residuum shall have a specific gravity 
of ninety-two hundredths (.92,1 to ninety-four hund- 
redths (0.94) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fah- 
renheit. It shall not flash below three hundred and 
fifty (350) degrees Fahrenheit when tested in a New 
York State Closed Oil Tester, and shall not volati- 
lize more than five (5) per cent, of material when 
twenty (20) grams are heated five (5) hours at three 
hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
in a tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in di- 
ameter. The semi-asphaltic residuum shall have 
the same general characteristics as paraffine re- 
siduum, except that it shall have a specific gravity 
of ninety-four hundredths (0.94) to ninety-eight 
hundredths (0.98) at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. It shall have a viscosity coefficient at 
two hundred and twelve (212) degrees Fahrenheit, 
of less than sixteen (16), as determined with an 
Engler viseosimeter. The asphaltic residuum shall 
have the same general characteristics as paraffine 
residuum except that the specific gravity shall be 
not less than ninety-eight hundredths (0.98) nor 
more than one and ten-hundredths (1.10) at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. The asphaltic re- 
siduum shall be evaporated, at a temperature not 
exceeding five hundred (500) degrees Fahrenheit, 
to a solid of fifty (50) penetration. It shall have 
a ductility at fifty (50j penetration of thirty (30) 
centimeters.

sewer in Norwood Park avenue and located in the 
roadway of said Norwood Park avenue at necessary 
points, adjacent to the curb lines. Each of said 
catchbasins shall be seven feet two inches deep, 
measuring from the top of the brickwork, and shall 
have an internal diameter of four feet at the- bot- 
tom and to a plane five feet above and parallel there- 
with. The walls of said catchbasins shall be eight 
inches thick and shall be built of two courses of 
sewer brick laid edgewise in perpendicular courses, 
upon a door of pine plank two inches in thickness. 
The top of each of said catchbasins shall decrease 
to two feet internal diameter, being drawn in by

tween the easterly line of South Michigan avenue 
and a line parallel v.'ith and one hundred forty (140) 
feet east of the easterly line of South Michigan ave- 
nue shall be spread a layer of sand or limestone 
screenings or slag screenings in such quantity as 
to insure when compacted a uniform depth of one 
( 1 1 inch to serve as a bed for the sandstone blocks. 

The pavement shall consist of sandstone blocks 
of the best quality, having a uniform grain and tex- 
ture without lamination or stratification, and free' 
from quarry sap. Soft or weather worn blocks or 
those obtained from the surface of the quarry must 
not be used. The blocks shall be made from layers 
of stone not less than two (2) feet in thickness.

of the blocks and pushed into the joints by squee- 
gees or other approved means, reOushing or repour- 
ing, if necessary, until the joints remain permanent- 
ly filled, fiush with the surface of the pavement. 
The cart or container shall be entirely emptied be- 
fore refilling. 

The appliances for heating the materials for fill- 
ing the joints shall be of such efficiency and num- 
bers as will permit the pourers to follow closely the 
rammers, and all joints of rammed pavement shall 
be poured with the filler before the cessation of work

clean graded sand and levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes. 
The sand and asphalt cement shall be heated sep- 
arately to a temperature of three hundred (300) 
degrees Fahrenheit. The levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes 
shall be mixed with the sand, and these ingredients 
then mixed with the asphalt cement at the above 
temperature in an apparatus which shall effect a 
thorough mixture. This mixture shall be composed 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide — 11.5 per 
cent.; material passing a 200-mesh sieve — 12 per 
cent.; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and re- 
tained on a 200-mesh sieve — 25 per cent.; material

be spread at a temperature of two hundred and 
eighty (280^ degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be care- 
fully spread to an even surface and to such depth 
that after having received its ultimate compression 
it will have a thickness of two (2) inches. 

TSie wearing surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition, shall receive 
initial compression by rolling with a self-propelled 
roller of five (5) tons weight after which natural 
hydraulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1.000) square yards of sur- 
face, shall be swept over it, and the whole then thor- 
oughly compressed by rolling with a self-propelled 
roller of ten (10) tons weight, the rolling being con- 
tinued for five (5) hours for each thousand (1.0001 
square yards of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the refined asphalt or asphalts and flux, 
where flux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
the refined asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts of 
each, and that the total proportion of refined asphalt 
or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement shall not 
be less than fifty (50) per cent, by weight. When 
the weight of fiux in the asphalt cement prepared 
from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty-five (25) per 
cent, thereof, asphaltic or semi-asphaltic fiux shall be 
used. The refined asphalt and fiux used in prepar- 
ing the cement shall be melted together in a kettle at 
temperatures ranging from two-hundred and fifty 
(250) degrees to not over three hundred and seventy- 
five (375) degrees Fahrenheit, and be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by air, steam or mechanical ap-.

plianees, until the resulUiig cement has become thor- 
oughly mixed into a homogeneous mass. The agita- 
tion must be continued during the entire period of 
preparing the mixtures. The cement shall always 
be of uniform consistency and if any portion should 
settle in the kettles between intervals of using the 
same it must be thoroughly agitated before being 
drawn for use. The asphalt cement shall have a 
penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
beit, of from thirty (.30) to one hundred (100) de- 
grees, which shall be varied within these limits to 
adapt it to the particular asphalt used in the paving 
mixture and to the traffic and other conditions of 
the street. When forty (40) grams of the asphalt 
cement of the consistency used in the paving mix- 
ture shall be beated for five (5) hours at a tem- 
perature of three hundred and twenty-five (325) de- 
grees Fahrenheit, in a tin box two and one-quarter 
(2%) inches in diameter, there must not be volatil- 
ized more than five (5) per cent, of the bitumen nor 
shall the penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit after such heating be less than one-half 
of the original penetration. A briquette of the 
asphalt cement of the consistency used in the pav- 
ing mixture shall have a ductility of not less than 
ten (10) centimeters. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 
asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty (450) degrees Fahrenheit 
until all water and light oils have been driven off. 
At least ninety-eight and one-half (98 Vs) per cent, 
of the contained 'Ibitumen in the refined asphalt 
which is soluble in cold carbon disulphide shall be 
soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt may also bo obtained by the 
careful distillation of California or Mexican petro- 
leum with steam agitation, at a temperature not ex- 
ceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, un- 
[\[ the resulting residue has a consistency not softer 
than seventy (70) degrees penetration and not harder 
than thirty (30) degrees penetration. The solid resi- 
due so obtained shall be soluble in carbon tetra chlo- 
ride to the extent of ninety-eight and one-half (98 Vl-) 
per cent. If the solubility in carbon tetra chloride of 
the solid residue is less than ninety-nine (99) per 
cent., the bitumen shall yield upon ignition not more 
llian fifteen (15~i per cent, of fixed carbon; 'if the 
solubility is ninety-nine (99) per cent, or more, the 
bitumen shall yield upon ignition not more than 
eighteen (18) per cent, of fixed carbon. When forty 
(40) grams of the material are heated for five (5) 
hours at a temperature of three hundred and twen- 
ty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit in a tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, it shall lo;-?e 
not over five (5) per cent, by weight nor shall the 
penetration after such heating be less than one-half 
of the original penetration. The refined asphalt shall 
have a ductility at fifty (50) penetration, of thirty 
(30) centimeters. 

The flux may be a paraffme, a semi-asphaltic or 
an asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall be 
tested with and found suitable to tjhe asphalt to be 
used. All fiuxes shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-nine (99 1 per cent. 
The parafTine residuum shall have a specific gravity 
of ninety-two hundredths (.92) to ninety-four hun- 
dredths r.94) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. It shall not flash below three hundred and 
fifty (350) degrees Fahrenheit when tested in a New 
York State Closed Oil Tester, and shall not volatilize 
more than five (5) per cent, of material when twenty 
(20) grams are heated five (5) hours at three hun- 



dred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit in a 
tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter. 
The semi-asphaltc residuum shall have the same 
general chai''acteristics as paralfine residuum, except 
that it shall have a specific gravity of ninety-four 
hundredths (0.94) to ninety-eight hundredths (.098) 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall 
have a viscosity coefficient at two hundred and 
twelve (212) degrees Fahrenheit, of less than six- 
te'en (16), as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. 
The asphaltic residuum shall bave the same general 
characteristics as paraffine residuum except that the 
specific gravity shall be not less than ninety-eight 
hundredths (0.98) nor more than one and ten-hun- 
dredths (1.10) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fah- 
renheit. The aspbaltc residuum shall be evaporated, 
at a temperature not exceeding five hundred (500) 
degrees Fahrenheit, to a solid of fifty (50) pene- 
tration. It shall have a ductility at fifty (50) pene- 
tration of thirty (30) centimeters. 

The abutting pavements on said above specified 
streets, where necessary, shall be so adjusted as to 
conform to the surface of the finished pavement 
hereinbefore described.

ly adopted at two meetings of the Firemen's Associa-

Be it resolved, That Local No. 2, International 
Association of Fire Fighters do hereby request the 
City Council of the City of Chicago to grant all 
members of the uniformed force of the Fire De- 
partment below the rank of Battalion Chief, an 
increase in salary of five hundred dollars ($500.00), 
and do recommend the equalization of salary of

surate with the highest paid Fire Department in the

Increases in Salaries of Patrolmen. 

The City Clerk presented the folowing communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Finance: 

Honorable William Hale Thompson, Mayor, and the 
City Council of the City of Chicago: 

Your petitioners, the Patrolmen of the Police De- 
partment of the City of Chicago, ask leave to submit 
for the consideration of Your Honorable Body, their 
joint and separate applications for a further in- 
crease in the rate of pay now allowed to them for 
services. 

This petition may, properly, be regarded as sup- 
plemental to that presented by your petitioners un- 
der date of December 29, 1919. In it was set forth 
the special circumstances and conditions to which 
all the Patrolmen were and are subject and which 
your petitioners respectfully urge and claim justify 
the financial relief sought herein. 



December 8, 1920. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1205 



Your Honorable Body was pleased to give heed to 
the appeal then made and did grant the Patrolmen an 
increase of their pay rating; and they gratefully 
acknowledge the added compensation as of most wel- 
come assistance; moreover, it was to them a distinct 
source of encouragement and satisfaction that the 
action taken by Your Honorable Body was so gen- 
erally commended by the public and the press. 

Your pelitio~ners then recognized and now fully 
comprehend the difiiculties confronting Your Honor- 
able Body in the endeavor to deal justly with the 
Patrolmen, be considerate of the claims of other em- 
ployes in the several departments of the City's ser- 
vice, who had similar occasion to appeal to Your 
Honorable Body for an adjustment of their pay al- 
lowances, while at the same time keeping within 
proper bounds of the City's fiscal limitations; but, 
mindful as are your petitioners, of all the attendant 
circumstances affecting other employes of the City, 
the Patrolmen feel warranted in rriaking this further 
plea for relief for the reason that, the acute situa- 
tion of living costs continues, as before recited, and 
also, because of the tacit assurances conveyed to your 
petitioners, that at the beginning of the new fiscal 
year, the disposition of Your Honorable Body to give 
further and favorable consideration to the matter 
would not be lacking. 

Your petitioners are aware that Your Honorable 
Body well knows the character and amount of gross 
expenditures each of the Patrolmen must make out 
of the pay allotted to them, before the actual living 
requirements of the men and their families arc 
reckoned: but, in mutual fairness it should be stated, 
the people of our great and growing city, with few 
exceptions, do not knoio that the cost of Uniforms, 
Equipment, Weapons, and Ammunition, Contribution 
to Police Pension Fund, and other items, totalling a 
large sum per year, must be met and paid for out of 
the salaries fixed for the Patrolmen of the several 
grades, a condition not optional but compulsory. 

Your petitioners, therefore, feel impelled in their 
behalf, to direct attention to the affirmative fact that, 
on the present basis of pay allowance, the net amount 
of money remaining for the personal needs of the 
Patrolmen after the compulsory deductions referred 
to, is well under Five Dollars per day to those Pa- 
trolmen in the second and third year grades of ser- 
vice, and beloiv Four Dollars per day to Patrolmen 
of the first year grade of service, a rate of compensa- 
tion altogether out of harmony with the reognized 
value of the services the Patrolmen are called upon 
to render, and, when the hours of duty, the condi- 
tions of the employment and the risks of personal 
injury, if not loss of life, are taken into account, em- 
phasizes the great disparity between the earning 
power or money value of a man in police uniform and 
one who is classed as an unskilled laborer. 

Efficiency of the Police Force is the principal re- 
liance against outbreaks of crime and it is upon the 
alertness, courage and mental ability of its members 
that the people must depend; and your petitioners 
respectfully insist, that the Police of Chicago, as a 
whole, despite any contrary assertions, are constant- 
ly striving to advance their efficiency as guardians 
of public safety; reciprocally, it is in order to ob- 
serve that efficiency can be best attained and its con- 
tinuance assured by adequate pay award for police 
services, and, if the men of desired qualifications now 
in the Police Department are to remain and develop 
rightly and men of like desirable calibre recruited 
as additions to the Force when wanted, your peti- 
tioners are well persuaded the community when ful- 



ly informed of the conditions, will cordially give ap- 
proval of any remedial measures exercised by Your 
Honorable Body in this direction. 

This petition is made and submitted upon the un- 
animous vote of the Chicago Patrolmen's Social, 
Athletic and Efficiency Club, a voluntary association 
of Patrolmen, not aflHiated with any other body or 
organization, and the Committee chosen as signers 
hereof was instructed to ask for an increase in pay 
rating to the Patrolmen of the several grades equiva- 
lent to twenty-five per cent. 

All of which is respectfully submitted and the 
pleasure of Your Honorable Body awaited,

Proposed Establislunent of the "Electric Block" Bench 
Mark. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Streets 
and Alleys: 

Department of Public Works,] 

Bureau op Sewers,}- 

Chicago, December 3, 1920.J 

To the Honorable the Mayor, and the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Section 1063 of The Chicago Code 
now reads as follows : 

"1063. Lind Block Bench Mark — Established.) 

The standard elevation of the Lind Block Bench 
Mark shall be 15.659 feet above city datum; and 
the city bench engineer shall start his levels for 
establishing bench monuments and city bench 
marks from the said Lind Block Bench, with an 
elevation thereof of 15.659 feet above city datum." 

The Lind Block Bench Mark, which by the above 
Section is made the standard City bench, from which 
all others are to be established, no longer exists, the 
Lind Block having been destroyed by fire. It seems 
advisable that a new standard bench be established. 
One suitable for such a purpose is a bench on the 
building known as the "Electric Block", an eight- 
story structure on the west side of North Market 
street about 135 feet south of West Washington 
street. The Electric Block is founded on caissons 
built to the rock and therefore probably not subject 
to settlement. 

The elevation of the bench point on the Electric 
Block has been carefully determined by comparison 
with many existing bench marks and standard bench 
rhonuments, and the elevation proposed for -it, 15,587 
feet above city datum, is believed to give a correct 
reference to the city datum as fixed in 1894 and 1895 
by Mr. W. H. Hedges, late Bench Engineer of the City 



of Chicago, who determined the elevation of the Lind 
Block as being, at that time, 15.659 feet above city 
datum, which elevation was accepted by the City 
Council. 

It is therefore recommended by me that Section 
1063 of The City Code be amended to read as fol- 
lows: 

"1063. Electric Block Bench Mark — Established.) 

The standard elevation of the Electric Block Bench 
Mark, located on the west side of North Market 
street and 135% feet south of West Washington 
street, shall be 15.587 feet above city datum; and 
the City Bench Engineer shall start his levels for 
establishing bench monuments from the said Elec- 
tric Block Bench, with an elevation thereof of 
15.587 feet above city datum."

fourths (%) inch thick nor more than seven- 
eighths (%) inch thick, and shall be cast with 
trunnions in one piece. In outline they shall be a 
regular polygon of fourteen (14) sides inscribed in a 
circle twenty-eight and three-eighths (28%) inches 
in diameter. The heads shall be provided with 
flanges extending outward from the inside face 
thereof to afford a means of fastening the staves. 
There shall be for each head a liner or wear plate one 
(1) inch in thickness and conforming to the outline 
of the head, but inscribed in a circle twenty-eight 
and one-eighth (28%) inches in diameter. These 
liners shall be made of hard machinery cast iron, 
which must contain not less than one (1) per cent 
of combined carbon, and shall be securely fastened 
to the heads by cap screws. 

The staves shall be made of six (6) inch medium 
steel structurial channels twenty-seven and one- 
fourth (27%) inches long and weighing fifteen and 
five-tenths (15.5) pounds per lineal foot. The flat 
side of each channel shall be protected by a liner or 
wear plate made of medium steel three-eighths ( % ) 
inch thick, by five and one-half (5%) inches wide, 
and nineteen and three-fourths (19%) inches long. 

The stave liner shall be securely fastened to the 
channel with rivets, which shall be chipped off flush 
with the surface of the liner. The liners of the 
staves must be so placed as to drop between the 
liners of the heads. The staves shall be bolted to 
the heads and shall form a barrel twenty (20) inches 
long, inside measurement between liners. The bar- 
rel shall be mounted on a cast iron frame securelv 



fastened to a rigid foundation, and shall be driven 
by suitable gearing. 

The charge shall be composed of sai-^' brick and 
iron abrasive material. The brick charge shall con- 
sist of ten (10) whole bricks and the abrasive 
charge shall consist of three hundred (300) pounds 
of shot made from iron having a chemical composi- 
tion within the following limits: combined carbon, 
not less than 2.50 per cent; graphitic carbon, not 
more than 0.10 per cent; silicon, not more than 1.0 
per cent; manganese, not more than 0.50 per cent; 
phosphorus, not more than 0.25 per cent; sulphur', 
not more than 0.08 per cent. Said shot shall con- 
sist of spheres having a diameter of one and seven- 
eighths (1%) inches aggregating two hundred and 
twenty-five (225) pounds in weight, and spheres 
three and three-fourths (3%) inches in diameter, 
aggregating seventy-five (75) pounds in weight. 

The rattler, after being thus ^charged, shall be re- 
volved eighteen hundred (1800) times, and the speed 
of rotation shall not fall below twenty-nine and one- 
half (291/2) nor exceed thirty and one-half (301/2) 
per minute. The average loss of weight by abrasion 
durmg two tests shall not exceed twenty (20) per cent 
of the original weight of the brick tested. The 
tests shall be made on charges containing but one 
make of brick at a time. Said brick shall bo thor- 
oughly dry when tested. 

All brick used must be equal in every respect to 
the brick submitted for test. 

The brick shall be laid as follows, to wit,: Broken 
brick can only be used to break joints in starting 
courses and in making closures, but in no case shall 
less than three-eighths (%) of a brick be used. The 
brick shall bo set lengthw'ise on edge, with the sides 
and ends close together, across said roadbed parallel 
to vertical planes which shall be at right angles to 
the curb lines of said roadwaj-s. 

On roadway intersections the brick shall be set 
lengthwise on edge with the sides and ends close to- 
gether and parallel to vertical planes which shall 
be at an angle of forty-five (45) degrees with the 
center line of the street. 

The joints shall be broken by a lap of not less 
than three (3) inches. The brick when set shall be 
rolled with a roller of five (5) tons weight until the 
brick is well settled and made firm. When the brick 
is thoroughly bedded, the surface of the pavement 
must be true to the form of roadway hereinbefore 
described. 

The joints or spaces between the brick shall be 
filled with asphaltic filler at a temperature between 
two hundred and eighty (280) degrees and three 
hundred and seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit.

catchbasins, constructing and connecting catch- 
basin inlets, constructing a concrete curb, adjust- 
ing abutting sidew^alks, grading and paving — of the 
roadway of Torrence .avenue from the south line 
of East 95th street to a straight line connecting the 
northeast and northwest corners of East 104th 
street, and also the roadways of all intersecting 
streets and alleys extended from the curb line to 
the street line produced on each side of said Tor- 
rence avenue between said points, in the City of 
Chicago, Couiity of Cook and State of Illinois. 



Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That a local improvement shall be 
made within the City of Chicago, County of Cook and 
State of Illinois, the nature, character, locality and 
description of which local improvement is as fol- 
lows, to wit: 

That the roadway of Torrence avenue from the 
south line of East 95th street to a straight line con- 
necting the northeast and northwest corners of East 
104th street, the width of said roadway being hereby 
established at thirty-eight (38) feet, and also the 
roadways of all intersecting streets and alleys ex- 
tended from the curb line to the street line pro- 
duced on each side of said Torrence avenue between 
said points, be and the same are hereby ordered im- 
proved as follows : 

A concrete curb shall be constructed on each side 
of the roadway of said Torrence avenue between said 
points (except across the roadways of all intersect- 
ing streets and alleys between said points), in such a 
manner that the roadway face of the curb shall be 
parallel with and nineteen (19.) feet from the center 
line of said Torrence avenue; and a concrete curb 
shall be constructed on each side of the roadways of 
all intersecting streets and alleys extended from the 
curb line to the street line produced on each side of 
said Torrence avenue between said points in such a 
manner that the roadway face of the curb shall con- 
form with the curb line produced on each side of all 
said intersecting streets and in such a manner that 
the back of the curb shall conform with the alley 
line produced on each side of the intersecting alley, 
between said points. 

Said curb shall be made as follows, to wit: 

The concrete to be used shall consist of the best 
quality of Portland cement mixed with torpedo sand 
or material equal thereto for concrete purposes, in 
the proportion of one (1) part cement and two (2) 
parts torpedo sand or material equal thereto, into 
which shall be incorporated four (4) parts of washed 
gravel or material equal thereto for concrete pur- 
poses of varying sizes that will pass through a ring 
of one and one-half (IVa) inches internal diameter 
and be held on a ring of one-fourth (%) of an inch 
internal diameter. The cement and torpedo sand or 
material equal thereto shall be mixed thoroughly and 
then moistened with water to form a mortar, into 
which shall be incorporated the four (4) parts of 
washed gravel or material equal thereto as specified 
above and rammed into forms until solid. 

The material to be used in finishing the surface 
of said curb shall consist of the best quality of Port- 
land cement and torpedo sand in the proportion of 
one (1) part cement and two (2) parts torpedo sand, 
which, after being moistened with water to form a 
mortar, shall be evenly spread over the top of said 
curb and the roadway face thereof for the space of 
twelve (12) inches down from the top. to a thickness 
of one-eighth (Vg) of an inch, so as to insure a 
smooth and even surface on the top and roadway face 
of said cu"rb as specified above, after being evenly 
trowelled and finished with a broom. 

Said curb shall be seven (7) inches wide at the top, 
nine (9) inches wide at the bottom and twenty- four 
(24) inches in depth, and the upper roadway edge 
sihall be rounded to an arc of a circle having a radius 
of one and one-half (i-Vi) inches. 

Said curb shall be constructed upon a bed of cin- 
ders, gravel or sand three (3) inches in depth after 
being fiooded with water and thoroughly compacted

rence avenue shall be so constructed that the top 
edge of the same shall be at the elevation of straight 
lines connecting tiie several points at the elevations 
hereinafter described and the top edge of the curb 
on each side of the roadways of all intersecting streets 
extended from the curb line to the street line pro- 
duced on each side of said Torrence avenue shall be 
at the elevation of said intersecting streets herein- 
after described and the top edge of the curb on each 
side of the roadway of the intersecting alley extend- 
ed from the curb line to the street line produced on 
the west side of said Torrence avenue shall rise from 
the curb line to the street line produced at the rate 
of one (1) inch vertical to three (3) feet horizontal 
from the elevation of the curb of said Torrence ave- 
nue between said points, which elevations shall be as 
follows, to wit: 

At the intersection of East 95th street, 4.50 feet

The roadway of said Torrence avenue between said 
.points, and also the roadways of all intersecting 
streets and alleys extended from the curb line to the 
street line produced on each side of said Torrence 
avenue between said points, shall be so graded that 
after being thoroughly puddled and rolled with a 
roller of ten (10) tons weight until the roadbeds are 
thoroughly compacted and after the pavement here- 
inafter described shall have been placed thereon, the 
surface of the pavement at the center of the finished 
roadway of said Torrence avenue, and the center of 
the finished roadways of all intersecting streets ex- 
tended from the curb line to the street line produced 
on each side of said Torrence avenue shall be at the

The slope of the gutters adjoining llic roadway face 



of said curbing shall be uniform from the summits 
to the catchbasin inlets, and a transverse section of 
the finished surface of the pavement shall be an arc 
of a circle passing through the said gutter elevations 
and the elevation of the center of said -finished road- 
way, at every part of said Torrence avenue, and at 
every part of all intersecting streets, between said

the pavement at the center of said finished roadway. 
The surface of the said pavement thence shall slope 
gradually to meet the gutter hereinbefore specified. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared between said 
points shall be spread a layer of Portland cement 
concrete six (6) inches in thickness. 

Said cement shall be so ground that ninety-twc 
(92) per cent will pass through a standard number 
one hundred (lOO) sieve having ten thousand (10,- 
000) meshes per square inch.

staves. The heads shall be not less than three- 
fourths (%) inch (hick nor more than seven-eighths 
(%) inch thick, and shall be cast with trunnions in 
one piece. In outline they shall be a regular polygon 
of fourteen (14) ,sides inscribed in a circle twenty- 
eight and three-eighths (28%) inches in diameter. 
The heads shall be provided with flanges extending 
outward from the inside face thereof to afford a 
means of fastening the staves. There shall be for 
each head a liner or wear plate one (1) inch in 
thickness and conforming to the outline of the head, 
but inscribed in a circle twenty-eight and one-eighth 
(281/8) inches in diameter. These liners shall be 
made of hard machinery cast iron, which must con- 
fain not less than one (1) per cent of combined car- 
bon, and shall be securely fastened to the heads by 
cap screws. 

The staves shall be made of six (6) inch medium 
steel structural channels twenty-seven and one- 
fourth (27%) inches long and weighing fifteen and 
five-tenths (15.5) pounds per lineal foot. The flat 
side of each channel shall be protected by a liner or 
wear plate made of medium steel three-eighths (%) 
inch thick, by five and one-half (SVo) inches wide, 
and nineteen and three-fourths 019%) inches long. 

The stave liner shall be securely fastened to the 
channel with rivets, which shall be chipped off flush , 
with the surface of the liner. The liners of the 
staves must be so placed as to drop between the 
liners of the heads. The staves shall be bolted to 
the heads and shall form a barrel twenty (20) inches 
long, inside measurement between liners. The barrel 
shall- be mounted on a cast iron frame securely 
fastened to a rigid foundation, and shall be driven 
by suitable gearing. 

The charge shall be composed of said brick and 
iron abrasive material. The brick charge shall con- 
sist of ten (10) whole bricks and the abrasive charge 
shall- consist of three hundred (300) pounds of shot 
made from iron having a chemical composition within 
the following limits: combined carbon, not less than 
2.50 per cent; graphitic carbon, not more than 0.10 
per cent; silicon, not more than 1.0 per cent; man- 
ganese, not more than 0.50 per cent; phosphorus, 
not more than Oi.25 per cent; sulphur, not more 
than 0.08 per cent. Said shot shall consist of spheres v 
having a diameter of one and seven-eighths (1%) 
inches aggregating two hundred and twenty-five 
(225) pounds in weight, and spheres three and- three- 
fourths (3%) inches in diameter, aggregating sev- 
enty-five (75) pounds in weight. 

The rattler, after being thus charged, shall be 
revolved eighteen hundred (1800) times, and the 
speed of rotation shall not fall below twenty-nine 
and one-half (29% ) nor exceed thirty and one-half 
('30%) per minute. The average loss of weight by 
abrasion during two tests shall not exceed twenty 
(20) per cent of the original weight of the brick 
tes'ted. The tests shall be made on charges contain- 
ing but one make of brick at a time. Said brick 
shall be thoroughly dry when tested. 

All brick used must be equal in every respect to 
the brick submitted for test. 

The brick shall be laid as follows, to wit: Broken 



brick can only be used to break joints in starting 
courses and in making closures, but in no case shall 
less than three-eighths (%)" of a brick be used. The 
brick shall be set lengthwise on edge, with the sides 
and ends close together, across said roadbed paralleF 
to vertical planes which shall be at right angles to 
the curb lines of said roadways. 

On roadway intersections the brick shall be set 
lengthwise on edge with the sides and ends close 
together and parallel to vertical planes which shall 
be at an angle of forty-five (45j degrees with the 
center line of the street. 

The joints shall be broken by a lap of not less 
than three (3) inches. The brick when set shall be 
rolled with a roller of five (5) tons weight until the 
brick is well settled and made firm. When the 
brick is thoroughly bedded, the surface of the pave- 
ment must be true to the form of roadway herein- 
before described. 

The joints or spaces between the brick shall be 
filled with asphaltic filler at a temperature between 
two hundred and eighty (280) degrees and three 
hundred and seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit. 

Said filler shall have a specific gravity of not less 
than unity one (1.00) at seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. It shall have a penetration at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit of not less 
than forty (40) nor more than one hundred (100) 
millimeters when tested with a immber two (2) nee- 
dle weighted with one hundred (100) grams for five 
(5) seconds, and it shall melt at a temperature of not 
less than one hundred and ten (110) degrees nor 
more than one hundred and fifty (150) degi^ees 
Fahrenheit. The surface of the pavement shall 
then receive a one-fourth (%) inch dressing of 
clean, dry torpedo sand. 

The abutting sidewalks on said Torrence avenue, 
where necessary, shall be so adjusted as to conform 
to the curb elevations hereinbefore described. 

The several sewer manholes and catchbasins loc- 
ated in said roadway shall be raised or lowered as 
may be necessary to make them conform to the 
finished surface of said pavement; and the several 
catchbasins located outside of said roadway shall be 
raised or lowered as may be necessary to make them 
conform to the elevations herein described. The 
several catchbasins located on the line of the curb 
shall be raised or lowered and adjusted as may be 
necessary to make them conform to the finished sur- 
face of said pavement, or to said elevations accord- 
ing to whether the major part of said catchbasin lies 
within or without the line of said curb. Catchbasin 
inlets shall be constructed at necessary points in said 
gutters. The catchbasins not located in the gutters 
shall lie connected with said inlets by means of tile 
pipe of eight (8) inches internal diameter laid with 
the best quality of natural hydraulfc cement mortar, 
composed of one (i) part natural hydraulic cement 
and two (2) parts clean, sharp sand. Said tile pipe 
shall be straight, smooth and sound, thoroughly

Chairman. 



The following communication was submitted with 
the foregoing report: 

Department of Finance,) 
Chicago, December 8, 1920.^ 

Hon. John A. Richert, Chairman, Committee on 
Finance: 

Dear Sir — Herewith, please find letter addressed 
to the City Council, in conformity with Section 5 of 
Part Two of Article XII of "An Act to provide for 
the Incorporation of Cities and Villages", requiring 
the City Comptroller to advertise for bids from 
regularly established national and state banks doing 
business in the City of Chicago, for interest on money 
of the City deposited in the respective ba.nks. 

From a tabulation of the bids, it will be noted that 
the rate of interest is practically the same as it was 
during the current year. In other words, the City 
receives slightly in excess of 3% on all its money, 
except such money as remains in the Active Bank, 
on which the interest rate paid is 2%%.. 

. There were 9 new bids received, 7 of which are 
from recently incorporated banks. Twenty-three of 
the smaller banks which were depositary banks dur- 
ing the current year did not bid, so that the net 
result is a decrease of 14 banks, making a total of 
103 banks, as against 117 at present. 

We would respectfully suggest that these bids be 
accepted at the next meeting of the City Council, in 
order that we may have sufficient time to examine 
the bonds of the banks which the Council sees fit to 
designate as depositaries for 1921. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) George F. Harding, 

Comptroller, 

Alderman Richert moved to concur in said report 
and to pass said ordinance.

L. B. Anderson, said ordinance was passed, by yeas and

Wherfj^s, The present revenue derived by the city 
from professional baseball games is trivial compared 
to the enormous income derived by the owners and 
promoters of professional baseball clubs in the city; 
and 

Whereas, The city expends large sums each year 
in the payment of salaries of policemen necessarily 
used in the handling of vast crowds attending base- 
ball games; and 

Whereas, In addition to the inadequate revenue 
now derived from professional baseball games in 
Chicago, the recent investigation of the grand jury 
indicates that the public of Chicago has been im- 
posed upon by dishonest players and professional 
gamblers through the fixing or attempting to fix base- 
ball games; and 

Whereas, In view of the baseball situation, it 
would be well to have included in any ordinance 
regulating wrestling, also provision for the regulation 
and fixing of compensation to be paid to the city for 
professional ball games; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Committee on Revenue, Com- 
pensation and Elections is hereby directed to include 
in such ordinance creating an a,thletic commission 
regulating wrestling and fixing compensation for 
wrestling matches, also the same power over pro- 
fessional baseball.

said resolution.

Certain Suits against the Tribune Co. and against tlie 

Chicago Daily News Co. and Victor F. Lawson: 

Ratification and Approval. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication: 

Office op the Mayor,) 
Chicago, December 22, 1920.-( 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On the 17th day of September, 1920, 
pursuant to my direction, the Corporation Counsel 
brought two suits in the Circuit Court of Cook County 
by the City of Chicago for $10,000,000 each, one num- 
bered B-67285 against the Tribune Company, and the 
other numbered B-67286 against the Chicago Daily 
News Company and Victor F. Lawson. 

In general, these suits are to recover the damage 
done to the City by false publications in the Tribune 
and the Chicago Daily News, made recklessly and 
maliciously and with bad motives and for uajustifi- 
able ends, respecting the financial condition of the City 
and tlie honesty and integrity of its government in 
general. That you may be more fully informed as to 
the nature of these suits, I transmit herewith copies 
of the declarations fded in each of them. 

A copy of the declaration against the Tribune Com- 
pany is attached hereto and marked "Exhibit A". 

A copy of the declaration against the Chicago Daily 
News Company and Victory F. Lawson is attached 
hereto and marked "Exhibit B". 

Today, December 22, 1920, the Tribune Company 
made a motion to dismiss 'the suit against it on the 
ground that the Corporation Counsel was not author- 
ized to bring it; and the court set such motion for 
hearing on Monday, December 27, 1920. The Cor- 
poration Counsel advises me and I believe that such 
motion is not well founded. However, to remove any 
doubt there may be, I request that the City Council

The motion prevailed. 

Said exhibits read respectively as follows: 

^'Exhibit A." 

State of Illinois,) 
County of Cook, \ 

In the Circuit Court of Cook County 

December Term, A. D. 1920. 

The City op Chicago, 
A Municipal Corporation, 
vs. 

The Tribune Company, j 

A Corporation. J 

No. B-67285. 
Trespass on the Case. 

Now comes the City of Chicago by Samuel A. Ettel- 
, son, its Corporation Counsel and Chester E. Cleveland, 
its attorney and complains of the defendant, The 
Tribune Company, a corporation, in a plea of tres- 
pass on the case. 

For that whereas on, to wit: the 17th day of Sep- 
tember, A. D. 1920, and for many years next prior 
thereto, at to wit: the County aforesaid, the plain- 
tiff was a Municipal Corporation, organized and ex- 
isting under and by virtue of the laws of the State 
of Illinois, and the plaintiff then and there and at 
all times hereinafter mentioned had within its Cor- 
porate limits a population of to wit: three million 
people, and the plaintiff then and there and at all 
times hereinafter mentioned owned, maintained and 
operated a large variety of property, aggregating in 
value more than three hundred and fifty million 
($350,000,000.00) dollars; among such properties be- 
ing the City Hall Building; about 39 police stations; 
about 120 fire engine houses; about 43 police patrols; 
about 10 ambulances; about 85 automobiles; about 
50 motor cycles; about 128 fire engines; about 37 
hook and ladder wagons and other apparatus used,

maintained and opera.ted by the Fire Department of 
the plaintiil'; about 146 play grounds and small parks 
together with equipment thereon, located within var- 
ious parts of plaintiflf's corporate limits; about 2112 
miles of streets maintained and kept in repair by the 
plaintift"; about 75 bridges maintained and operated 
by the plaintiff; a very large amount of vehicles and 
other apparatus owned and used by the plaintiff in 
cleaning and repairing the streets; a Municipal Tu- 
berculosis Sanitarium; a waterworks system with 
about 6 cribs located in Lake Michigan and about 10 
pumping stations owned, used and operated by the 
plaintiff in supplying itself, its citizens and certain 
adjacent municipalities with water pumped from 
Lake Michigan; together with many other proper- 
lies of grea.t value. 

And the plaintiff in order to maintain and operate 
said properties is obliged to and does spend each year 
for materials, supplies and labor, large sums of 
money aggregating each year, to wit: fifty million 
($50,000,000.00) dollars, exclusive of any amounts 
required for school purposes, a large part of which 
materials and supplies the plaintiff is obliged to pur- 
chase through competitive bids; and the plaintiff is 
also obliged to purchase each year large amounts of 
new property approximating each year, to wit: seven 
million ($7,000,000.00) dollars, exclusive of proper- 
ty purchased for school purposes, a large part of 
which new property the plaintiff is also obliged to 
purchase through competitive bids. 

And for that also the plaintiff, in order advan- 
tageously to purchase such materials, supplies, la- 
bor and otber property must have good financial 
credit, and that whatever injuriously affects the 
plaintiff's fmancial credit results in the plaintiff be- 
ing obliged to pay higher prices for such material 
and supplies and other property than it otherwise ' 
would be obliged to pay and tends to restrict the 
number of competitive bids for the sale of such labor, 
materials, supplies and other property by causing 
persons, firms and corporations, who would other- 
wise bid for selling the same, to refrain from doing 
so. 

And for that also the plaintiff then and there and 
at all times herein mentioned has been engaged in 
making large improvements, local and general, the 
cost of which is to a very large extent defrayed by 
bonds issued by the plaintiff, which bonds must be 
sold upon the market to the public and the amount 
of money realized by the plaintiff for the making of 
such improvements from the sate of such bonds, de- 
pends upon the price which the plaintiff can obtain 
for such bonds, and whatever injuriously affects the 
credit of the plaintiff depreciates the market value 
of said bonds and reduces the amount which the 
plaintiff can obtain by the sale thereof; and for that 
also the cost to the plaintiff of making such local and 
general improvements is largely increased by what- 
ever injuriously affects the financial credit of the 
plaintiff, because of the increased cost which the 
plaintiff is thereby required to pay for supplies, labor 
and materials necessary for such work and for the 
further reason that whatever injuriously affects the 
financial credit of the plaintiff tends to restri&t com- 
petitive bidding and thereby reducing the number of 
bidders for such work. 

And whereas also the City has various funds, to 
wit: the corporate fund, special assessment funds, 
the water fund and various other funds realized from 
the bonds sold by the plaintiff; the corporate fund 
being separate and distinct from said other funds, 
and, although, at some times there may not be 



enough actual cash on hand in said corporate fund 
to meet all the current obligations of the City, there 
was then and there, and at all times herein men- 
tioned, abundant cash in each and all of said other 
funds to meet all obligations chargeable against them 
and each of them, but the false publications made by 
the defendant as hereinafter set forth were general 
in their nature and applied indiscriminately not only 
to said corporate fund, but also to said other funds, 
and injuriously affected the plaintiff not only with 
respect to its 'dealings with said corporate fund, but 
also in its dealing with respect to each and all such 
other funds. 

And for that also the plaintiff had a certain special 
fund known as the traction fund, created under cer- 
tain contract ordinances between the plaintiff and the 
Chicago City Railway Company, the Chicago Rail- 
ways Company, the Calumet and South Chicago 
Street Railway Company and the Southern Street 
Railway Company, aggregating with interest over 
$25,000,000, which said fund was then and there and 
at all times herein mentioned intact and invested in 
first class securities. 

And for that also the plaintiff for the year 1920 
was deprived of a large amount of revenue aggre- 
gating, to wit: Seven million ($7,000,000) dollars 
from saloon licenses which was available to the 
plaintiff in former years; and the plaintiff was also 
obliged to meet the current high cost of labor, sup- 
plies, materials and property in consequence whereof 
its corporate fund may not be sulficient to meet all 
the current obligations chargeable against it for the 
year 1920, yet the plaintiff has in no way wasted or 
dissipated said corporate fund, but has used and 
applied the same economically, and the said con- 
dition of said corporate fund is due solely to the 
loss of said revenue and to the increased cost of 
labor, materials, supplies and property, and not to 
any mismanagement of the plaintiff's affairs and such 
deficit if any in said corporate fund for the year 1920 
is secured by plaintiff's vast assets and will be 
liquidated in due course. 

And the defendant. The Tribune Company, a cor- 
poration, was then and there the owmcr, and publisher 
of a certain newspaper, published daily, in the City 
of Chicago, to wit: in the County of Cook aforesaid; 
which said newspaper was sometimes known as Chi- 
cago Daily Tribune and sometimes known as The 
Tribune; that said newspaper then and there had a 
daily circulation in said County of Cook and State 
of Illinois of to wit: Four hundred thousand and 
also a large circulation elsewhere in the United 
States. 

Yet the defendant well knowing the premises, did 
wickedly, recklessly and maliciously at the times 
hereinafter mentioned publish in said Chicago Daily 
Tribune of and concerning the plaintiff the certain 
false, scandalous, malicious and defamatory matter 
hereinafter set forth; that is to say, defendant did 
on the 15th day of June, A. D. 1920, so publish in 
said newspaper, the following: 

"CITY (meaning plaintiff) 'broke' owes millions 

OP 1921 FUNDS. 

"Bankruptcy is just around the corner from the 
City of Chicago, which has quit paying bills for 
material and supplies, to* continue meeting the 
$2,400,000 monthly municipal payroll.

"'Credit shot to pieces.' 

'"There is no question that the City (meaning

plaintiff) is paying 40 per cent more than outside 
corporations, because of the doubt that the bills 
can be met and the knowledge that the sellers 
must wait for their money'. Alderman Woodhull 
said : 'The City's credit is being shot to pieces.' " 

And said defendant did on the 20th day of June, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

"In a recent statement James B. Forgan de- 
clared that the City (meaning the plaintiff) is 
headed for bankruptcy unless it makes immediate 
retrenchments." 

And said defendant did on the 30th day of June, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: ■ 

" 'The City's (meaning plaintiff) fmancial affairs 
are in a serious way. The Comptroller has already 
asked permission to give promises to pay, instead 
of money, to the firms who are selling the City 
supplies." 

And said defendant did on the 15th day of July, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing : 

"Oglesby (meaning a certain candidate for nomi- 
nation for governor of said State of Illinois on the 
ticket of the Republican party) opens campaign 
with defi to Mayor, (meaning the Mayor of plain- 
tiff) * * * 'It is the issue between this Tam- 
many government which has bankrupted the 
treasury of the City of Chicago (meaning plaintiff) 
which is in default to the City creditors, which 
already this year has disbursed next year's 
revenues, which has heaped new burdens upon 
the already overburdened taxpayers which next 
year must again and still further increase the sum 
of taxation and which has piled up the City's debt 
by millions upon millions. * * *.'" 

And said defendant did on the 23rd day of July, 
A. D. 1920," so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: , . 

"high finance in the city (meaning plaintiff) 

HALL. 

"Certificates of indebtedness in which the City 
(meaning plaintiff) publicly and officially acknowl- 
edges its inability to pay its bills for supplies and 
materials are being issued at the City Hall. These 
cgi'tificates, while acknowledging the liabilities, 
make no promise to pay except 'at such time as 
there will be sufficient money for this purp'ose in 
said (corporate purposes) fund, which time it is 
anticipated will be not later than April 1, 1921.' 
The banks will not touch them. 

"How the City expects to have 'sufficient money' 
in that fund by April 1, 1921, is left a mystery. 
In view of the present methods of financing the 
City government and expending its moneys this 
mystery is a dark one. With liabilities piling up 
at the rate of some $5,000,000 a year, the hopes of 
holders of these certificates seem to rest upon un- 
certain ground." 

And said defendant did on the 29th day of July, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

"Thompson and Lundin, having busted the City, 
(meaning plaintiff) and having reduced it to such 
insolvency that it is issuing Villa scrip to pay its 
bills, are reaching out for the state. The cam- 



paign to elect Lundin's man, Len Small, Governor, 
is opening." 

And said defendant did on the 31st day of July, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: . ' 

"the big bunk (meaning the Mayor of plaintiff) 

MUST EXPLAIN. 

"Big Billy the Big. Bunk, has gone a long way 
toward his political success and the downfall of 
Chicago by bunk talk on taxes and tax dodging. 

"He has found it easy to make charges and has 
continued to repeat them after they have been re- 
futed. Now the Big Bunk is being sued for non- 
payment of taxes. From charging he must go to 
explaining. It will be good practice for him. 

"The time is coming for the Big Bunk to explain 
a lot of things; how he bankrupted the City, (mean- 
ing plaintiff) what he is going to do with the 
governorship if he gets his man Friday in; how 
enemy airplanes came .to drop copies of his 
speeches back of the American lines. 

"It is going to be a busy summer for the Big 
Bunk." 

And said defendant did on the 1st day of August, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

"Thompson (meaning the Mayor of plaintiff) now 
is paying City (meaning plaintiff) debts with City 
Hall scrip and we have just begun to feel the 
effects of being busted." 

And said defendant did on the 3rd day of August,

North Dearborn street, to open the Cook County 
primary campaign against Thompsonism. * * *

threatened with a receivership for its revenue,

A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

'■The people of Chicago (meaning plaintiff) have 
committed to it^ (meaning the political organi- 
zation with which the Mayor of plaintiff was 
affiliated) foi* several years past, control of their 
government. The results are apparent. Civil 
service laws are disregarded. Public service of 
the City is demoralized. Its public funds are 
squandered on political and personal favorites. 
The City (meaning plaintiff) is bankrupt. The 
employes of the City, who would ordinarily be- 
faithful in the discharge of their duties, are com- 
pelled to act as its spoilers." 

And said defendant did on the 17th day of August,

ing: 

"no TAMMANY IN ILLINOIS. 

"The City of Chicago (meaning plaintiff) has 
gone broke under the Thompson-Lundin admin-

dry." 

And said defendant did on the 19th day of August. 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

" 'Chicago (meaning plaintiff)' is a living example 
of the executive ability of Lundin-Thompson,' he 
(meaning one John V. Clinnin) continued: 'It can- 
not pay its debts. It (meaning the plaintiff) is 
bankrupt and the banks of the City have refused 
it credit. A deficit of $10,000,000 confronts the 
taxpayers, who are now groaning under increased 
rental costs and high taxes.' " 

And said defendant did on the 20th day of August, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: . ■ 

"NO' TAMMANY IN ILLINOIS. 

"The fact that the state has a surplus and Chi- 
cago (meaning plaintiff) is broke is one which 
Thompson assails with a dozen explanations which 
leave it unexplained. The state tax rate has been 
reduced and the sta.te has money. The City tax 
rate has been increased and the City is trying to 
pay bills with scrip. 

"Thompson has put new burdens on the tax- 
payer. Debts are being piled up. Money is 
appropriated millions beyond revenue. The debt 
is being increased. The taxes will be. Confidence 
in the City government is at such a low ebb, that 
when the City Hall asks for authority to issue 
bonds, the voters refuse to give it. 

"Thompson tries to obscure these facts, but can- 
not. The City government has run on the rocks. 
The state government is sound. It will remain 
sound if it is kept out from under the control of 
Chicago's Tammany."

"To Down State Voters — Mayor Lundin-Thomp-

And said defendant did on the 1st day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following : 

"no TAMMANY IN ILLINOIS. 

"Permanent improvements are a hobby of the 
Thompson-Lundin administration in Chicago 
(meaning plaintiff). The Thompson Tammany 
points with pride to its achievements in that line. 
It view^s with alarm as a base calumny against 
the City (meaning plaintiff) the charges that we 
are on the brink of bankruptcy. It cites the bonded 
debt of other cities to prove that Chicago is less 
deep in the mire than they. It was naturally dis- 
appointed when the voters last spring refused to 
authorize more City bonds. It now seeks to extend 
its control and its hobby to the state where $80,- 
000,000 worth of bonds await sale for more 
permanent improvements." 

And said defendant did on the 2nd day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following: 

"editorial of the day. 

"don't bow to CHICAGO (meaning plaintiff). 

"There has been a fight between Cook County 
and the downstate part of the state since the oldest 
voter can remember.

"The credit and financial standing of the state 
was never better and we must keep the money in 
the treasury and not open the doors to the ravages 



of the Chicago (meaning plaintiff) bankrupt ad- 
ministration." 

And said defendant did on the 3rd day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following: 

"the plug uglies. 

"Thompson (meaning the Mayor of plaintiff) has 
adopted his natural political attitude. His speech 
in which he called Governor Lowden a crook and 
a liar took immensely with his partisans as a plug 
ugly speech to plug uglies. 
***** **** 

"They are the plug uglies who profit from the 
padding of City (meaning plaintiff) payrolls, from 
the misuse of public funds, from waste of money 
on City contracts, from the failure of the police 
to regulate crime, from the boosting of taxes, and 
from the incompetence of mu'nicipal government." 

And said defendant did on the ■ith day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following: 

"everybody pays for THOMPSON. 

"Thompson (meaning the Mayor of plaintiff) has 
busted the municipality (meaning plaintiff). He 
says prohibition did it. If he had the $7,000,000 
which the City (meaning plaintifi") had from the 
saloons the City would be broke. The legislature 
gave him an increased tax rate to take the place 
of th'e saloon money. The City is broke in spite 
of that. 

"It (meaning the plaintiff) would be broke if it 
had the increased tax rate and if it had the saloon 
money. He has proceeded as if he had the $7,000,- 
000. That is represented in the City deficit. He is 
paying in script or he is not paying at all. No one 
knows where the money is coming from this year, 
but everybody knows where it is going and every- 
body knows where it must come from eventually. 
It must come from the citizens, all of "them. 

"Thompson supports his army on the public 
money. It enables him to have an army. It is an 
army that lives off the country. It has exhausted 
the City (meaning plaintiff). It has eaten it 
barren. It now wants the sanitary district, the 
county, and the state for more money. They have 
money because they have not been under Thomp- 
son's hands. The City (meaning plaintiff) has 
none because it has been under his hands. 

"The pay-rollers and the fee men have it and 
must continue to have it if they are to remain 
with Thompson. They must get it out of public 
work, public improvements, public expenditures, 
and at the public expense." 

And in another part of said newspaper on said 4th 
day of September, A. D. 1920, defendant so published 
the following:

"THOMPSONISM in ILLINOIS. 



"The Thompson (meaning the Mayor of plain- 
tiff) administration in Chicago (meaning plain- 
tiff) with its (meaning plafntiff) exhausted 
treasury, would be a poor successor to Lowden 
(meaning the Governor of said State of Illinois).' 

And said defendant did on the 6th day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following : 

"from the busted city (meaning plaintiff) to the 
RICH ST.\TE (meaning State of Illinois). 

"The fact that Thompson (meaning the Mayor 
of plaintiff) uses to prove the fmancial stability of 
the City is one which Thompson cannot control 
and which he docs regret and resent. It has noth- 
ing to do with the solvency of the municipal 
government (meaning the government of plaintiff). 
It (meaning plaintiff) is busted and it can be 
extricated only by more taxation. 

"The City (meaning plaintiff) is broke. It can- 
not pay decent wages to deserving City employes, 
to the police and firemen, because it pays out- 
rageous salaries to political employes. It does 
not pay its bills. Its position becomes worse 
month by month. By the end of the year it will 
be nearly $5,000,000 in the hole." 

And said defendant did on the 8th day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following : 

"why THE CITY (meaning plaintiff) is broke. 

"The City is broke, taxes are going up, every- 
thing affected by taxes is going up, rents, etc.. City 
bills are not paid, deficits increase, and the conse- 
quences will be more taxes." 

And in another part of said newspaper on said 8th 
day of September, A. D. 1920, defendant so published 
the following: 

"Lieutenant-Governor Oglesby last night carries 
his fight into the home ward of Fred Lundin, the 
thirty-third, a bailiwick which boasts more high 
paid City employes to the square mile than any 
other in Chicago. 

"ST.\TE (meaning State of Illinois) treasury vs. 
CHICAGO'S (meaning plaintiff) . 

"He asked his audience to compare the finances 
of Chicago under the Thompson-Tammany regime 
with those of the State under Governor Lowden. 
The State had a net balance of more than $16,000,- 
000 on July 1 and the City (meaning plaintiff) a 
deficit of about the same amount." 

And said defendant did on the 9th day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following : 

"Chicago (meaning plaintiff) is a living example 
of the executive ability of Lundin-Thompson. It 
cannot pay its debts. It (meaning the plaintiff) is 
bankrupt; the banks have refused it credit. A 
deficit of $10,000,000 confronts the taxpayers who 
are now groaning under increased rental costs and 
high taxes. The rate for 1919 was $2.55 on each 
$100 of valuation, and if the debits must be paid, 
next year will see this rate doubled." 

And in another part of said newspaper on said 9th 



day of September, A. D. 1920, defendant so published 
the following: 

"in the meantime THOMPSON (meaning the Mayor 
of plaintiff) runs Chicago (meaning plaintiff). 

"Des Moines, la., September 5. 

"Editor of Tlic Tribune: 

"If you will just discontinue 'knocking' Chicago 
(meaning plaintiff) about being broke, etc., you 
will confer a favor on Chicagoans who are com- 
pelled to travel for a living. 

"I don't care what you say about Thompson, but 
leave Chicago alone. You may say you can't 
separate them. Yes you can. It would be a sorry 
day indeed if you couldn't separate Chicago and 
Thompson.

And said defendant did on the 10th day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following: 

"women and TAMMANY. 

"Women, if given the vote, will put an end to 
the slovenly civic housekeeping which men permit. 
This was one of the most tolling arguments for 
suffrage. 

"Is it going to be verified? The primaries of next 
Wednesday will put it to the test in Chicago 
(meaning plaintiff) and in Illinois (meaning said 
State of Illinois). 

"The effects of the housekeeping which Chicago 
(meaning plaintiff) has had for over four years 
any woman in the City can see. 

"The alleys are full of uncollected garbage and 
the streets are accumulations of dust and filth. 
The air is full of it and of the smoke that general 
law violation permits to darken our skies. 

"iMen may put up with such a City (meaning 
plaintiff). Will women? The health of every 
child is endangered by filthy streets and alleys. 
There is no housekeeper whose daily task is not 
made longer and harder by the wind driven dust 
and soot of the City. There is no housekeeper try- 
ing to combat the high cost of living, trying to 
keep children and family in health and in neat- 
ness, to keep the house clean and bright, to meet 
the bills of laundryman, of butcher and baker, who 
does not find the battle harder because Tammany 
spends in politics what the taxpayers give it to 
keep the City (meaning plaintiff) in decent con- 
dition. 

"Tammany housekeeping has meant increased 
doctors' bills, increased laundry bills, increased 
rent, increased taxes. Its burden has fallen 
especially upon the women of the City. Women 
who have husbands, sons or brothers on the City 
payroll may have reason to vote for the Tammany 
candidates. But what other woman has? 

"Women voters in Chicago (meaning plaintiff) 
know what Tammany housekeeping is. Do they like 
it? If they do not, it is necessary to use against 
it the weapon of defense which the law has put 
in their hands. 

"But there is worse than physical dirt and filth 
in Tammany housekeeping. There is its moral 
dirt and filth. The moral condition of the City 
(meaning plaintiff) is a threat which every decent 
woman must challenge. Day after day the news

records show the prevalence of violence and law- 
lessness under the rule of Tammany. The other 
day a young girl returning from her work was 
abducted at her own mother's door and carried 
away by miscreants in broad daylight. Women 
of the town have openly invaded old residence dis- 
tricts and vice extends its enterprise where it has 
never been before. 

"Chicago (meaning plaintiff) has never been 
hea.ven. No great City has been. But there is no 
reason why Chicago (meaning plaintiff) should be 
a suburb of hell, and that is what it is becoming 
under the rule of Tammany. 

"Chicago women, with the help at this primary 
of downstate women, can put a slop to Tammany 
housekeeping. Certainly Illinois does not want it. 
Certainly the homemakers of Chicago do not want 
any more of it. 

"But they must do more than protest. They 
must use the power that has now been given them 
for the defense of their children and their homes. 

"Big Bill's (meaning the Mayor of plaintiff) 
■ slogan has been: 'Throw away your hammer and 
get a horn.' A great slogan for Tammany. But 
good housekeeping is not done with a horn. Chi- 
cago women need a different slogan. 'Throw away 
your horn and get a broom.' 

"And if a broom doesn't get results, get an ax." 

And said defendant did on the 11th day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following : 

"ettelson (meaning the Corporation Counsel of 
plaintiff) fails to give data on $50,000 'clerks'. 

"The Thompson boosters have not cited the 
spending of this $50,000 fund as one of the merits 
of the 'efficient management' of the City (meaning 
plaintiff) Hall. This is left out as well as the' 
issuance of script because the City (meaning plain- 
tiff) is unable to pay its debts." 

And said defendant did on the 13th day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following : 

"In fact, every City official is terribly busy deny- 
ing that the City (meaning plaintiff) is broke." 

, And in another part of said newspaper on said 13th 
day of September A. D. 1920, defendant so published 
the following: 

"This broke the City (meaning the plaintiff), 
but people pay little attention to City finances and 
rates of taxation and their effect upon prices and 
rentals, and it was a safe chance to take. It held 
an army of workers together and made the army 
enthusiastic. 
♦ *••*•••« 

"The derelictions of the, municipal government 
(meaning plaintiff) are beyond defense, and con- 
sequently no defense is undertaken except to call 
all challengers liars and defamers, to say that the 
financial strength of Chicago the City (meaning 
plaintiff) is the financial solvency of a busted 
municipal corporation (meaning plaintiff) and that 
the enemies of the people want to break down the 
people's government. This has to be satisfactory 
as a defense, because there is no other, and it is 
none. 
********* 

"The City (meaning plaintiff) has a deficit of 
several millions and it is growing, its bills are un- 



paid, it issues scrip and the City tax rate has been 
increased, and an attempt will be made to in- 
" crease it again. The City (meaning plaintiff) has 
been denied the authority to issue more bonds and 
Thompson (meaning the Mayor of plaintiff) hav- 
ing flattened out the City (meaning plaintiff) 
wants to move into the State (meaning the State 
of Illinois). 
********* 

"If Thompson had the street car system it Would 
be as flat broke within two months as the City 
(meaning plaintiff) now is, and about the first time 
the street car employes got their first pay in scrip, 
there would be no street cars running. 

"The Thompson record is a record of wreckage. 
It is a fact that the City now has not the faintest 
idea how it will escape from its dilemma. No one 
pretends to know how the City will get through 
the next six months. The consequences are just 
arriving to indicate what they will be." 

And said defendant did on the 14th day of Septem- 
ber, A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 
following : 

"We know the City (meaning plaintiff) is broke 
and by a few fortunate discoveries we now know 
why." 

And said defendant did on the 15th day of Septem- 
ber. A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the 

following: 

"?— IF CHICAGO (meaning plaintiff) has $23,000,000 

WHY NOT PAY BILLS — ? 

"Answer: It's Trust Funds and Can't Be Used. 

"If Chicago had $23,000,000 cash in the banks

"The condition of the City's (meaning plaintiff)

'will be paid at such time as there will be sufficient 
money for this purpose in said (corporate) fund, 
which time it is anticipated will not be later than 
^April 1, 1921.' 

"Why April 1, 1921? Because next year's taxes 
will begin to roll in then, permitting the City 
(meaning plaintiff) to pay this year's bills out of 
next year's taxes." 

And the plaintiff avers that each and all of said 
publications were false and untrue; that the same 
were published by the defendant maliciously and in 
utter and reckless disregard of the rights of the 
plaintiff; that none of said publications was pub- 
lished with good motives or for justifiable ends, but 
that each and all of said publications were published 
to promote the political and financial interests of 
the defendant and certain other persons and cor- 
porations, especially certain public utility cor- 
porations, associated with the defendant and acting 
in co-operation with it; that all of said publications 
were published by the said defendant with the in- 
tent and purpose to injure and impair the financial 
credit of the plaintiff and to give the impression

and lead Iho readers of said pviblications to believe 
(hat the management of the administrative and 
governmental affairs of plaintiff were conducted in 
a corrupt and incompetent manner; that the plaintiff 
was bankrupt and unworthy of credit and could not 
and would not pay its just debts and obligations; and 
that it would be dangerous for persons, firms or cor- 
porations to invest in bonds issued by the plaintiff 
and dangerous for persons, firms or corporations to 
enter into contracts with the plaintiff for the sale to 
the plaintiff of materials, labor or supplies. 

That by means of the committing of which said 
grievances by the defendant, the plaintiff has been 
and is greatly ingured in its good name, reputation 
and financial credit and has been and is otherwise 
injured to the damage of the plaintiff in the sum of 
ten million ($10,000,0001 dollars, and, therefore, it 
brings this suit, etc.

AND Victor F. Lawson. ) 

No. BG728C. 

■ ' Trespass on the Case. 

Now comes, the City of Chicago by Samuel A. 
Ettelson, its Corporation Counsel and Chester E. 
Cleveland, its attarney, and complains of the de- 
fendants. The Chicago Daily News Company and 
Victor F. Lawson, of a plea of trespass on the case. 

For that whereas on, to wit: the 17th day of Sep- 
tember, A. D. 1920, and for many years next prior 
thereto, at, to wit:- the County aforesaid, the plain- 
tiff was a municipal corporation, organized and ex- 
isting under and by virtue of the laws of the State 
of Illinois, and the plaintiff then and there and at 
all times hereinafter mentioned had within its cor- 
porate limits a population of, to wit: 3,000,000 peo- 
ple, and the plaintiff then and there and at all times 
hereinafter mentioned owned, maintained and ope- 
rated a large variety of property, aggregating in 
value more th-an three hundred and fifty million 
($350,000,000.00) dollars; that among such proper- 
ties were the City Hall Building; about 39 police sta- 
tions; about 120 fire engine houses; about 43 police 
patrols; about 10 ambulances; about B5 automobiles; 
about 50 motor cycles; about 128. fire engines; about 
o7 hook and ladder wagons and other apparatus 
used, maintained and operated by the fire department 
of the plaintiff; about 146 play grounds and sniall 
parks, together with equipment thereon, located 
within various parts of plaintiff's limits; about 2112 
miles of streets maintained and kept in repair by 
the plaintiff; about 75 bridges maintained and ope- 



pcrateil );>• Ihe plaint i If; a very large numljcr of 
vehicles and a large amount of other apparatus own- 
ed and used by the plaintiff in cleaning and repairing 
Hie streets; a Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium; a 
water-works system with G critjs located in Lake 
Michigan, and 10 pumping stations owned, used and 
operated by the plaintiff in supplying itself, its citi- 
zens and certain adjacent municipalities with water 
pumped from Lake Michigan; togi'ther with many 
othei". properties of great value. 

And the plaintiff in order to maintain and operate 
said properties .is obliged to and does spend each 
year for materials, supplies and labor, large- sums 
of money aggregating each year, to wit: Fifty mil- 
lion ($50,000,000.00; dollars, exclusive of any 
amounts required for school purposes, a large part 
of which materials and supplies the plaintiff is ob- 
liged to purchase through competitive bids; and. the 
plaintiff is also obliged to purchase each year large 
amounts of new property costing approximately .each 
year, to wit: Seven million ($7,000,-000.00) dollars, 
exclusive of property purchased for school purposes, 
ii large part of which new property the plaintiff is 
also obliged to purchase through competitive bids. 

And foe that also the plaintiff, in order advantage- 
ously to purchase such materials, supplies, labor and 
other property must have good financial credit, and 
that whatever injuriously affects the plaintiff's fin- 
ancial credit, results in the plaintiff's being obliged 
to pay higher prices for such material and supplies 
and other property than it othecwise would be ob- 
liged to pay and tends to restrict the number of 
competitive bids for the sale of such labor, mate- 
rials, supplies and other property by causing per- 
sons, firms and corporations, who would otherwise 
bid for selling the same, to refrain from doing so. 

And for that also the plaintiff then and there and 
at all times herein mentioned has been engaged in 
making large improvements, local and general, the 
cost of which is to a very large extent defrayed by 
the proceeds of bonds issued by the plaintiff, which 
bonds must be sold upon the market to the public 
and (he aniount of money realized by the plaintiff 
for the making of such improvements from the sale 
of such bonds, depends upon the price which the 
plaintiff can obtain- for such bonds, and whatever 
injuriously affects the credit of the plaintiff depre- 
ciates. the market value of said bonds and reduces 
the amount which the plaintiff can obtain by the 
sale thereof, and for that also the cost to the plain- 
tiff of making such local and general improvements 
is largely increased by whatever injuriously affects 
the financial credit of the plaintiff", because of the 
increased cost which the plaintiff is thereby re- 
quired to pay for supplies, labor and materials 
necessary for such work, and for the further reason 
that whatever injuriously affects the financial credit 
of the plaintiff teiids to restrict competitive bidding 
and thereby reduces the number of bidders for such 
work. 

And whereas also the City has various funds, to- 
wit: the corporate fund, special assessment funds, 
the water fund and various other funds realized from 
the bonds issued and sold by the plaintiff; the cor- 
porate fund being separate and distinct from said 
other funds, and, although, at some times there may 
not be enough actual cash on hand in said corporate 
fund to meet all the current obligations of the City, 
there was then and there, and at all times herein 
mentioned, abundant cash in each and all of said 
other funds to meet all obligations chargeable against 
them and each of them, but the false publications 
made by the defendant as hereinafter set forth were

general in their nature and applied indiscriminately 
not only to said corporate fund, but also to said ot-her 
funds, and injuriously aft'ected tbe plaintiff not only 
with respect to its dealings with said corporate fund, 
but also in its dealings with respect to each and all 
such other funds. 

And for that also the plaintiff had a certain spe- 
cial fund known as the traction fund, created under 
certain contract ordinances between the plaintiff and 
the Cbipago City Railway Company, the Chicago 
Railways Company, the Calumet and South Chicago 
Street Railway Company and the Southern Street 
Railway Company, aggregating with interest over 
$25,000,000.00, wliich said fund was then and there 
and at all times herein mentioned intact aijd in- 
vested in first class securities. 

And for that also the plaintiff' for the year 1920 
was deprived of a large amount of revenue aggregat- 
ing to wit: Seven million ($7,000,000.00) dollars 
from saloon licenses which was available to the plain- 
tiff in former years; the plaintiff was also required 
to meet the current high prices of labor, supplies, 
materials and property in consequence whereof its 
corporate fund may not be sufficient to meet the cur- 
rent obligations chargeable against it for the year 
1920, yet the plaintiff' had in no way wasted or dis- 
sipated said corporate fund, but has used and applied 
the same economically, and the said condition of 
said corporate fund is due solely t^o the loss of said 
revenue and to the increased costs of labor, mate- 
rials, supplies and propertj% and act to any mis- 
management of the plaintiff's affairs, and such de- 
ficit if any in said corporate fund for the year 1920 
is secured by plaintiff's vast assets and will be liqui- 
dated in due course. 

And the defendant. The Chicago Daily News Com- 
pany, was then and there the owner, and the ae- 
fendant, Victor F. Lawson, was then and there the 
editor and publisher of a certain newspaper, pub- 
lished daily, except Sunday, in the City of Chicago, 
to wit: in the County of Cook aforesaid, which said 
newspaper was sometimes known as The Daily News 
and sometimes as The Chicago Daily N-ews; that said 
newspaper than and tliere had a daily circulation, 
except on Sundays, in said County of Cook and State 
of Illinois, of to wit: Four hundred thousand 
/^400,0.00j and also a large circulation elsewhere in 
the United States. 

Yet the defendants well knowing the premises, did 
wickedly, recklessly and maliciously at the times 
hereinafter mentioned compose and publish in said 
The Chicago Daily News of and concerning the plain- 
tiff the certain false, scandalous, malicious and de- 
famatory matter hereinafter set forth; that is to say, 
defendants did on the 6th day of April, A. D. 1920 
so publish in said newspaper, the following: 

"city's (meaning the plaintiff) finances 

DEMORALIZEO. 

"The City's finances are thoroughly demoralized. 
Expenditures are being'voted by the City Council 
without regard to where the funds with which to 
meet them will be obtained, but with the hope and 
expectation that ultimately additional taxes will 
be imposed." 

And said defendants did on the 15th day of June, 
A.D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

"no curb on expenditures. 

" 'The City (meaning the plaintiff.) is unable to 
meet bills for materials and supplies' said Mr. For- 



gan. 'Unless it changes its policy the end of the 
year will find the City without funds and without 
legal means of raising funds.' 



"CONSIDER ISSUING SCRIP. 

'"The City (meaning the plaintiff) will be com- 
pelled to issue scrip during the latter part of the 
year to meet even its pay rolls, it was predicted 
by members of the Council Finance Committee 
today. A lively time was in prospect for the City 
Council at tomorrow's session when the problem 
. of figuring out how the municipality is to dodge 
bankruptcy is brought up by Alderman Richert, 
Chairman of the Finance Committee." 

And said defendants did on the 16th day of June, 
A. D. 1920 so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing : 

"CHICAGO'S (meaning the plaintiff) wasteful 
government. 

"When one recalls that the City Council, under 
pressure from Mayor Thompson, overrode its Fin- 
ance Committee last winter and authorized the ex- 
penditure of $4,000,000.00 more than the City's 
estimated revenue for this year, one finds nothing 
surprising in the announcement that again Chi- 
cago is 'broke.' What the bankers and other in- 
telligent men with orderly minds predicted has 
come to pass. 

"The City (meaning the plaintiff) pay rolls are 
still loaded down with the names of the willing 
workers of^the Thompson-Lundin political machine, 
serving under sixty-day appointments, and their 
serial renewals, and the City's money to the ex- 
tent of hundreds of thousands of .dollars con- 
tinues to be squandered in fees paid to* so-called 
experts, who certainly are experts in ward politics. 

"In the entire community the City government 
is the only important organization that has not 
heeded the necessities of the times, and limited 
its program of expenditure and expansion. Well 
managed business concerns ])egan to curtail long 
ago, l)ut in spite of high and increasing prices of 
materials and the high and increasing cost of lab- 
or, the city government has persisted in its pro- 
gram of improvements and extensions, until its re- 
sources are exhausted, and it has bills amounting 
to a large total that it cannot pay. 

"After lending considerable sums on municipal 
bonds that cannot now be sold except at a ruinous 
discount, the banks have furnished the City fur- 
ther loans to the extent of $15,000,000.00 on tax 
warrants. ♦ * * 

"The one cure for Chicago's straitened financial 
condition is to stop reckless expenditui^es and be- 
gin rigidly economizing in the City departments." 

And said defendants did on the 17th day of June, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in sj^id newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

"It would be well -to stop all work in connection 
with them (meaning certain public improvements 
being made by plaintiff) and wait until money is 
easier, because the cost of employing real estate 
experts and legal advisers on the plan of the pre- 
sent administration is in itself enormous. It ap- 
pears to be a case of taking care of friends while 
the opportunity is at hand with the taxpayers pay- 
ing the freight." 

And said defendants did on the 2Uh day of June. 



December 22, 1920. 



COMMUNICATKhNS, ETC.

\. p. 1920. so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

■'The present fight that some of the Aldermen 
(meaning- Aldermen of plaintifT) are making to 
stop the scandalous waste of hundreds of thous- 
ands of dollars paid out shamelessly by the Thomp- 
son, administration (meaning the administration of 
plaint ift') to political favorites for alleged expert 
services of various descriptions points to only one 
of almost innumerable abuses by which the city 
hall crowd (meaning the duly elected and appoint- 
ed officials and employes of plaintitY) wastes the 
taxpayers' money literally to the extent of mil- 
lions. * * • 

"The City's (meaning the plaintiff) pitiful lack 
of funds as a result of these excesses does not 
serve to check the waste. * * * 

"Experts at an individual cost of $880 a day, 
legal defeats at $1,000,000 a series, political war 
dances at the sacrifices of plain business admin- 
istration of the people's affairs build up a stagger- 
ing overhead cost that the people of Chicago 
(meaning plaintiff) have to meet as individuals 
when they pay their tax bills, their rent bills, their 
grocers' bills. Its wasteful City administration is 
a substantial item entering into the high cost of 
living in Chicago." 

x\nd said defendants did on the 29th day of June, 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

"REJECT I. o. u.'s TO CITY (meaning the plaintiff) 

CREDITORS. 

"The Finance Committee paused long enough in 
its consideration of the traction expert bills to take 
up several other matters of loss importance. 

"A request by City Comptroller Harding (mean- 
ing the Comptroller of plaintiff) that he be per- 
mitted to issue certificates to the City's creditors 
acknowledging the City's indebtedness was re- 
.jected. The Finance Committee members took the 
view that the issuance of siich certificate would 
approximate the issuance of script, or paper in 
lieu of payment in actual cash, and held that the 
City was not legally empowered to take such a 
step." 

And said defendants did on the 8th day of July. 
A. D. 1920, so publish in said newspaper the follow- 
ing: 

"The City (meaning the plaintiff) is at the limit 
of its borrowing power, and if it could issue bond^ 
it could not sell them except at a scandalous dis- 
count. * * * , 

"The increasing deficits in municipal revenue, 
already amounting to millions, are to be loaded

on July 1 last there was a net balance of more than 
$16,000,000 in the state treasury while the deficit 
in the Chicago city treasury was almost the same

tax bills, he finds that the state taxes have ma- 
terally decreased in the last four, years, while 
City (meaning plaintifl') taxes have been rapidly 
mounting. He rellects, moreover, that the encf is 
not yet. The City's expenditures this year will 
exceed its revenues by $8,000,000 at least — such is 
the brilliant result, of ignoring the City Council 
Finance Committee's budget recommendations —

the ward workers for getting out the vote. That 
is often the whole job. Before an election many 
political workers are put on the City pay roll to 
save election expense. A precinct committeeman 
often has such a job. It pays the upkeep of his 
motor car and, in his own language; enables him to 
'step out amongst 'em.' Now and then a trade 
union ofTicial has to- be taken care of. The city 
hall pacifies Tim Murphy's first ward men by dis- 
tributing among them a liberal number of section 
foremen jobs reciuiring the holders' presence only 
on pay day. * * *

"Mayor Thompson's denial that the City is

in banks' on the first of this month is character- 
ized as 'bunk' by harmony Republican leaders, who 
point out that there should be more than $25,-

alone. * * *

produced in the fact that already about $10,- 
000,000.00 in tax anticipation warrants have been 
sold, mortgaging next year's tax receipts. * 

"John G. Oglesby, anti-Tammany candidate for 
governor, pointed out this bankrupt condition in 
Chicago in a speech before a large audience in 
Downers Grove this morning, asking the DuPage 
county voters, if they wanted the Thompson-Lun-

capturing the government of the county, of the 
sanitary district, of the State." 

"It expects to confuse the minds of the voters 
and make it appear that, because Chicago's bond- 
ed debt is low, therefore the City is in sound and 
healthy financial condition, and further, that the 
Thompson-Lundin regime is somehow entitled to 
credit for the low per capita debt. 

"What are the facts? The City (meaning plain- 
tiff) is 'broke' and faced by a deficit of some mil- 
lions of dollars. It is not. paying its bills. It is 
issuing scrip. It is paying interest on judgments 
obtained by creditors. The Thompson adminis-

lead the readers of said publica:tions to believe that 
the mana.gement of the administrative and govern-

bankrupt and unworthy of credit and could not and 
would not pay its just debts and obligations; and

City Council of the City of Chicago. 

The roadways of the several streets specified above 
between the points hereinbefore described, and also 
the roadways of all streets and alleys intersecting the 
several streets specified above and extending from 
the curb line to the street line produced on each side 
of each of said above specified streets between the 
points hereinbefore described, shall be so graded that 
after being thoroughly puddled and rolled with a 
roller of ten (10) tons weight until the roadbeds are 
thoroughly compacted a.nd after the pavement 
hereinafter described shall have been placed 
thereon, the surface of the pavement at the 
center of the finished roadway of each of said above 
specified streets, and the center of the finished 
roadways of all intersecting streets extended from 
the curb line to the street line produced on 
each side of each of said above specified streets, 
shall be at the elevation of the top of the curbing 
hereinbefore described; and the surface of the fin- 
ished roadways at the summits in the gutters between 
catchbasins and adjoining the roadway face of the 
curbing shall be three (3) inches below the top of 
said curbing, and the surface of the finished roadways 
at the catchbasin inlets in the gutters adjoining the 
roadway face of the curbing shall be ten (10) inches 
below the top of said curbing. 

The slope of the gutters adjoining the roadway 
face of said curbing shall be uniform from the sum- 
mits to the catchbasin inlets, and a transverse section 
of the finished surface of the pavement and gutters 
shall be an arc of a circle passing through the said 
gutter elevations and the elevation of the center of 
said finished roadways, at every part of the roadway 
of each of said above specified streets, and at every 
part of the roadways of all streets intersecting the 
several streets specified above, between the points 
hereinbefore described. 

In all intersecting alleys hereinbefore specified at 
the street lines produced of said above specified 
streets, the surface of the finished pavement adjoining 
the curbing shall be even with the top of the curbing, 
and tile surface of the finished pavement at the 
center of the roadway of said alleys shall be three 
(3) inches below the top of the curbing, and a trans- 
verse section of the finished surface of the pavement 
at the street lines produced of said above specified 
streets shall be an arc of a circle passing through 
the surface of the pavement adjoining said curbing 
and the surface of the pavement at the center of 
said finished roadways. The surface of the said pave- 
ment thence shall slope gradually to meet the gutters 
hereinbefore specified. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared between said 
points and between said gutters shall be spread a 
layer of Portland cement concrete six (G) inches in 
thickness. Said cement shall be so ground that 
ninety-two (92) per cent will pass through a standard 
number one hundred (100) sieve having ten thousand 
(10,000) meshes per square inch. 

Briquettes made from a mortar composed of one 
(1) part said Portland 'cement and three (3) parts 
torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of limestone screen- 
ings, free from dirt, dust and other impurities, ex- 
posed to the air for one (1) day and immersed in 
water for six (6) days, shall develop an ultimate 
tensile strength of two hundred (200) pounds per 
square inch. 

One (1) part cement which shall stand the above 
test and comply with the above requirements, and 
three (3) parts of torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of 



limestone screenings, free from dirt, dust and other 
impurities, shall be thoroughly mixed dry and then 
made into a mortar with the least possible amount 
of water. 

Seven (/) parts of the best quality of slag, lime- 
stone, or other stone which shall be equal in quality 
for concrete purposes, of a size that will pass through 
a ring of two (2) inches internal diameter and be 
held on a ring of one-half (%) inch internal dia- 
meter, all of which slag or stone shall be thoroughly 
cleaned, free from all foreign substances and 
drenched with water, shall then be incorporated im- 
mediately with the mortar. Each batch of concrete 
shall be thoroughly mixed and at once spread upon 
the surface of said roadbeds and thoroughly com- 
pacted by ramming until free mortar appears on the 
surface. The surface of said layer of concrete shall 
be parallel with and three and one-half {SVi) inches 
below the top of the finished pavement.. 

Upon the concrete foundation as above specified 
shall be laid a binder course, composed of asphalt 
cement, gravel or clean broken limestone of varying 
sizes which will pass through a ring of one (1) inch 
internal diameter and clean hard grained sand of a 
size that will pass a four (4) mesh sieve and be 
retained on a two hundred (200) mesh sieve. 

The gravel or stone and sand shall be heated, and 
thoroughly mixed with asphalt cement in such pro- 
portion that the resulting mixture shall contain by 
weight five (5) per cent, of bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide. twenty-five (25) per cent, of sand and 
seventy (70; per cent, of gravel or stone. This binder 
shall be spread on the base above described and 
while in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled 
to an even surface, and after having received its 
ultimate compression, shall be of a thickness of one 
and one-half (1%) inches. The upper surface shall 
be parallel with and two (2) inches below the finished 
surface of the pavement. . 

Upon this binder course shall be laid a wearing 
surface, which shall be composed of asphalt cement, 
clean graded sand and levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes. 
The sand and asphalt cement shall be heated sep- 
arately Lo a temperature of three hundred (300) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. The levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes 
shall be mixed with the sand, and these ingredients 
then mixed with the asphalt cement at the above 
temperature in an apparatus which shall effect a 
thorough mixture. This mixture shall be composed 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide — 11.5 per 
cent.; material passing a 200-mesh sieve — 12 per 
cent.; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and retained 
on a 200-mesh sieve — 25 per cent.; material passing- 
a 40-mesh sieve and retained on an 80-mesh sieve — 
38 per cent.; material passing a 10-mesh sieve and 
retained on a 'iO-mesh sieve — 12 per cent.; and ma- 
terial passing a 4-mesh sieve and retained on a 10- 
mesh sieve— 1.5 per cent. 

The wearing surface when mixed as above shall 
be spread at a temperature of two hundred and 
eighty (280) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be care- 
fully spread to an even surface and to such depth that 
after having received its ultimate compression it will 
have a thickness of two (2) inches. 

The wear surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition, shall receive 
initial compression by rolling with a self-propelled 
roller of live (5) tons weight after which natural 
hydraulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1,000) square yards of surface 



December 22, 1920. 



CGMMUNIGATIONS, ETC.

shall be swept over it, and the whole then thoroughly- 
compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller 
of ten (10) tons weight, the rolling being continued 
for five (5) hours for each thousand (1,000) square 
yards of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the refined asphalt or asphalts and flux, 
where flux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
the refined asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts of 
'each, and that the total proportion of refined asphalt 
or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement shall not 
be less than fifty (50) per cent, by weight. When 
the weight of flux in the asphalt cement prepared 
from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty-five (25) 
per cent, thereof, asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used. The refined asphalt and the flux used 
in preparing the cement shall be melted together in 
a kettle at temperatures ranging from two-hundred 
and fifty (250) degrees to not over three hundred and 
seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit, and be thor- 
oughly agitated when hot by air, steam or mechanical 
appliances, until the resulting cement has become 
thoroughly mixed into a homogeneous mass. The 
agitation must be continued during the entire period 
of preparing the mixtures. The cement shall always 
be of uniform consistency and if any portion should 
settle in the kettles between intervals of using the 
same it must be thoroughly agitated before being 
drawn for use. The asphalt cement shall have a pene- 
tration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, of 
from thirty (30) to one hundred' (1001 degrees, which 
shall be varied within these limits to adapt* it to the 
particular asphalt used in the paving mixture and to 
the trafilc and other conditions of the street. When 
forty (40) grams of the asphdlt cement of the con- 
sistency used in the paving mixture shall be heated 
for five (5) hours at a temperature of three hundred 
and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit, in a tin 
130X two and one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, 
there must not be volatilized more than five (5) per' 
cent of the bitumen nor shall the penetration at 
seventy^-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit after such 
heating be less than one-half of the original pene- 
tration. A briquette of the asphalt cement of the 
consistency used in the paving mixture shall have a 
ductility of not less than ten (10) centimeters. 

The refined- asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 
asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty (450) degrees Fahrenheit 
until all water and light oils have been driven off. 
At least ninety-eight and one-half (98%) per cent, of 
the contained bitumen in the refined asphalt which 
is soluble in cold carbon disulphide shall be soluble 
in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt may also be obtained by the 
careful distillation of California or Mexican petrol- 
eum with steam agitation, at a temperature not ex- 
ceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, 
until the resulting residue has a consistency not 
softer than seventy (70) degrees penetration and not 
harder than thirty (30) degrees .penetration. The 
solid residue so obtained shall be soluble in carbon 
tetra chloride to the extent of ninety^-eight and one- 
half (98%) per cent. If the solubility in carbon 
tetra chloride of the solid residue is less than ninety- 
nine (99) per cent., the bitumen shall yield upon 
ignition not more than fifteen (15) per cent, of fixed 
carbon; if the solubility is ninety-nine (99) per cent. 
or more, the bitumen shall yield upon ignition not 
more than eighteen (18) per cent, of fixed carbon. 
When forty (40) grams of the material are heated 



for five (5) hours at a temperature of three hundred 
and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit in a tin 
box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, 
it shall lose not over five (5) per cent by weight 
nor 'shall the penetration after such heating be less 
than one-half of the original penetration. The re- 
fined asphalt shall have a ductility at/ fifty (50; 
penetration, jof thirty (30) centimeters. 

The flux may be a paraffine, a semi-asphaltic or an 
asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall ibe 
tested with and found suitable to the asphalt to be 
used. All fluxes shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-nine (99) per cent. 
The paraffine residuum shall have a specific gravity 
of ninety-two hundredths (.92) to ninety-four hun- 
dredths (0.94) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. It shall not flash below three hundred and 
fifty (350) degrees Fahrenheit when tested in a New 
York State Closed Oil Testei-, and shall not volatilize 
more than five (5) per cent, of material when twenty 
(20) grams are heated five (5) hours at three hun- 
dred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit in a 
tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in diam- 
eter. The semi-asphaltic residuum shall have the 
same general characteristics as paraffine residuum, 
except that it shall have a specific gravity of ninety- 
four hundredths (0.94) to ninety-eight hundredths 
(0.98) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. * It 
shall have a viscosity coefficient at two hundred and 
twelve (212) degrees Fahrenheit, of less than sixteen 
(16), as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. The 
asphaltic residuum shall have the same general char- 
acteristics as paraffine residuum except that the 
specific gravity shall be not less than ninety-eight 
hundredths (0.98) nor more than one and ten-hun- 
dredths (1.10) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. The asphaltic residuum shall be evaporated, 
at a temperature not exceeding five hundred (500) 
degrees Fahrenheit, to a solid of fifty (50) penetra- 
tion. It shall have a ductility at fifty (50) penetra- 
tion of thirty (30) centimeters. 

The abutting sidewalks on said above specified 
streets, where necessary, shall be so adjusted as to 
conform to the curb elevations hereinbefore de- 
scribed.

tlion mixed with the asphalt ecmeiit at the above 
temperature in an apparatus which shall efl'ect a 
thoroug'h mixture. This mixlur(» shall be composed 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disuli)hide — 11.5 per 
cent.; material passing a L'00-mesh sieve — 12 per 
cent.; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and retained 
on a 200-mesh sieve — 2.5 per cent.: material passing 
a 40-mesh sieve and retained on an 80-mesh sieve — 
38 per cent.; material passing a 10-mesh s-ieve and 
retained on a 40-mesh sieve — 12 per cent.; and mate- 
rial passing a 4-mesh sieve and retained on a 10- 
mesh sieve — 1.5 per cent. 

The wearing surface when mixed as above shall 
be spread at a temperature of two hundred and eighty 
(280) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be carefully spread 
to an even surface and to such depth that after hav- 
ing received its ultimate compression it will have a 
thickness of two (2) inches. 

The wearing surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition, shall receive ini- 
tial compression by rolling with a self-propelled rol- 
ler of five (5) tons weight after which natural hy- 
draulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1000) square yards of surface 
shall be swept over it, and the whole then thorough- 
ly compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller 
of ten (10) tons weight, the rolling being continued 
for five (5) hours for each thousand (1000 1 square 
yards of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the retined asphalt or asphalts and flux, 
where tlux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
the refined asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts ot 
each, and that the total proportion of refined asphalt 
or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement shall not 
be less than fifty (50) per cent, by weight. When 
the weight of tlux in the asphalt cement prepared 
from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty-five (25 1 
per cent thereof, asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used. The refined asphalt and II ux used in 
preparing the cement shall be melted together in a 
kettle at temperatures ranging from two hundred and 
fifty (250) degrees to not over three hundred , and 
seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit, and be 
thoroughly agitated when hot by air, steam or me- 
chanical appliances, until the resulting cement has 
become thoroughly mixed into a homogeneous mass. 
The agitation must be continued during the entire 
period of preparing _the mixtures. The cement shall 
Always be of uniform consistency and if any portion 
should settle in the kettles between intervals of us- 
ing the same it must be thoroughly agitated before 
being drawn for use. The asphalt cement shall have 
a penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit, of from thirty (30) to one hundred (100) de- 
grees, which shall be varied within these limits to 
adapt it to the particular asphalt used in the paving 
mixture and to the traffic and other conditions of 
the street. When forty (40) grams of the asphalt 
cement of the consistency used in the paving mixture 
shall be heated for five (5) hours at a temperature 
of three hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fah- 
renheit, in a tin box two and one-quarter (2%) in- 
ches in diameter, there must not be volatilized more 
than five (5; per cent, of the bitumen nor shall the 
penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit after such heating be less than one-half of the 
original penetration. A briquette of the asphalt 
cement of the consistency used in the paving mixture 
shall have a ductility of not less (ban' ten (lOi centi- 
meters. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 



asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty' (450) degrees Fahrenheit un- 
til ail water and light oils have been driven off. At 
least ninely-eight and one-half (98 M;) per cent, of 
the contained bitumen in the refined asphalt which 
is sohdjle in cold carbon disulphide shall be soluble 
in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt may also be obtained by the 
careful distillation of California, or Mexican petro- 
leum with steam agitation, at a temperature not ex- 
ceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, un- 
til the resul-ting residue has a consistency not softer 
than seventy (70) degrees penetration and not harder 
than thirty (30) degrees penetration. The solid re- 
sidue so obtained shall be soluble in carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent. If the solubility in carbon tetra 
chloride of the solid residue is less than ninety-nine 
(99) per cent., the bitumen shall yield upon ignition 
not more than fifteen (15) per cent, of fixed carbon; 
if the solubility is ninety-nine (99) per cent, or more,
